The Christmas Story: Day 2

Mary was busy with the day’s jobs as usual, her mind full of the coming wedding, when she looked up and saw a stranger standing watching her. Before she could say a word, the man spoke.

“I am Gabriel, one of God’s messenger-angels,” he said. “I have a message for you from God.”

Mary could hardly believe her ears. She felt scared, and she wondered what the angel could mean.

“Don’t be frightened,” the angel went on. “God knows all about you and he loves you. He has sent me to tell you that he’s chosen you for a very special honour. You are to be the mother of God’s promised King. The baby will be God’s own Son.”

    For the ks2 puzzle of the day, I got the word problems. 16+18+15+12+12+5+13+19=100 . I found the joke very funny.
